  1. PUBG is, without a doubt, one of the most popular battle royale titles of all time. Well, the game developer PUBG Corp. just proved its worth by reporting $920 million in revenue in its first full year since the 1.0 launch, which roughly translates to nearly Rs 6,400 crores. Not just revenue, PUBG Corp. also saw huge profits of a whopping $310 million (roughly Rs 2,143 cr). That's an insane figure considering the fact that these numbers were achieved in just a year. Seriously, just imagine how many chicken dinners you could buy! © PUBG Corp. PUBG was apparently most popular in Asia, and it looks like over 50-percent of the game's revenue came from that region. North America and Europe were other big contributors to PUBG Corp's revenues. These numbers, in case you are wondering, came via VG247, and the report noted that the PC version of the game earned the developer $790 million (roughly Rs 5,400 cr) in 2019. Surprisingly, the numbers from the console and mobile versions of the game were similar. © PUBG Corp. We're looking at about $60 million and $64 million for console and mobile, respectively. It's, however, worth noting that PUBG Mobile is developed by Tencent Games, and it's likely to be cashing in the most from the mobile port of the game.
  2. Game Of Throne's final season is just around the corner and I bet every 'GoT' fan is sitting at the edge of their seats, wondering what to expect for the next one month. In India alone, people are throwing 'Game of Thrones' theme parties, doing season re-runs and taking one quiz after the other to catch up with whatever they've missed out on, so they're in tune with the latest episodes. It's phenomenal really, how the most watched show on earth has put people together in such an awesome way. HBO Just recently, Instagram came up with some interesting data concerning Indian 'Game Of Thrones' fans and we believe it to be absolutely true and alarming at the same time. The data was gathered by Instagram depending on the relevant GoT conversations happening on the platform since the last 30 days and a lot of information regarding fan theories and watching habits were revealed. HBO In the data summation, it was gathered that India ranks fourth when it comes to discussing 'Game Of Thrones' on Intagram, and of course it was the fourth country across the globe which is most excited for the final season! The number one to be most excited about GoT is USA, then Brazil, Great Britain, India and then Germany. Which means, Indians on Instagram do interact about what they're looking forward to the most or about probable theories that could come to light in the final season. The level of attraction where GoT is concerned is a lot higher than any other topic on Instagram, according to the data. HBO The influence of GoT across all channels is so prominent that even dating apps like OkCupid have a relevant GoT feature on their app. They have made it possible for daters to date each other according to their favourite TV show and since GoT ranks the charts, users have been allotted GoT badges to help them find their perfect match based on the favourite GoT character or kingdom. I think that's fairly innovative and a great conversation starter to say the least! HBO Another fascinating data search found that many Indians also have favourite characters and are looking forward to their screen time in season eight. The most talked about GoT characters on Indian Instagram are Jon Snow, ranking number 1, followed by Daenerys Targaryen, Aarya Stark, Sansa Stark and Tyrion Lannister. So three Straks, two Targaryen's and one Lannister, who probably is a Targaryen according a popular fan theory, is who people want to watch in season 8! Not bad if I must say so myself. The nominated characters on Instagram actually all have a wise fan theory behind them, that's why their demand to see them again is most talked about. Well, most people just want to see what happens between Dany and Jon next TBH! HBO So, in case you're a GoT fan and you have participated on Instagram discussing the show, you're responsible for this apt and accurate data accumulation a day before the final season is out and we're happy we're progressing towards pop-culture in a slow yet steady manner. Here's to hoping all your theories and wishes regarding the series see the light of day!
  3. At just 18 years of age, Muskan Kirar must feel on top of the world after bagging four medals including two golds, one silver and one bronze medal and was crowned the 'Individual Champion' in Compound women category at the 2019 Asia Cup World Ranking Archery Stage-1 in Bangkok on Monday. NEWS. India's Muskan Kirar ð¹ ð®ð³ defends Asia Cup ðð gold in Bangkok #archery ð¹ð¯ https://t.co/Bs0izP4q65 pic.twitter.com/hyIKv4TIXN — World Archery (@worldarchery) March 29, 2019 As sports enthusiasts, we are a sucker for stories that epitomise the rise of classic underdogs and Kirar's narrative does not disappoint. Hailing from the town of Jabalpur, Muskan has never been the one to back away from hard work. In an interview with india.com, her father spoke of her rigorous regimen during which Muskhan spends around nine hours every single day, putting in the effort just to get one step closer to perfecting her craft. And as a dedicated sports person, her achievements speak a thousand words about her sincerity and affection towards the game. Making a stunning debut on the professional level a couple of years ago in 2017, she put the national selectors on notice during the Senior Asian Championship in Dhaka and even managed to reach the Asia Cup Stage-3 the same year in Taipei, Taiwan in the senior category. But the archer was able to win her first gold in the sub-junior category during the 2017 season of National Archery Competition in Bhubaneswar and did not look back ever since. Before dominating the range at this year's Asia Cup, Kirar visited Bangkok in 2018 and had taken 'Krung Thep' by storm and won the gold back then as well. However, a big portion of credit behind Muskan's skyrocketing career must be given to her father Virendra Kirar who runs a butcher shop in their hometown of Jabalpur. “None of us usually talk about my profession as people look down upon it… But with whatever money I earn, I help my children accomplish their dreams,” Mr. Kirar told india.com. A father of three children, Virendra has made sure to not compromise with the sporting dreams of his kids. With Muskan clearly making a name for herself, her father is also dedicated to send his younger daughter Saloni into archery as well while making his boy, Basu, a karate expert. How often do we overlook the wonderful support system an athlete's family becomes for them. Parents like Virendra Kirar, go through hell to earn a living, only to give up on their own dreams and aspirations and make the world happen for their children. While there is no doubt that Muskan Kirar's relentless pursuit of her dreams got her to where she is right now, we have to acknowledge the sacrifices her father has made to make it a reality.
  4. 2019 can be considered to be the Indian Football team captain, Sunil Chhetri's year, who despite crashing out of this year's AFC Asian Cup, has had a brilliant run and made (and broken) a series of records such as surpassing Argentine legend Lionel Messi's international record of being the second highest active goal scorer. C.H.A.M.P.I.O.N.S ð#HeroISLFinal #LetsFootball #FanBannaPadega #NewChampion pic.twitter.com/IA3g4Y0cdQ — Indian Super League (@IndSuperLeague) March 17, 2019 And now, with the 2019 Indian Super League (ISL) coming to an end, Chhetri also has his first ISL title under his belt as Bengaluru FC defeated Goa FC behind a single goal forced in by Rahul Bheke in the 117th minute with a miraculous header, that went in despite Goa keeper N. Kumar's hand coming in contact. “It is a great feeling for me as I scored in the final minute of the final. I am really happy and it will be a memorable moment for me,” said the 28-year-old who is no less than a superhero for the people of Bangalore for bringing home the title. Bheke's goal not only won the Blues their first title but also gave them direct access into the next season of AFC Asian Cup. The title also comes as sweet redemption for national skipper Sunil Chhetri who spoke out in the post-media coverage: "Last year after the final, I said next year we'll come back. Right from the ball boy to Carles (Cuadrat the coach), everyone wanted this.” “We wanted to win it (the title) badly. When you lose the way we did last year, it's sweet to win this one.” Suddenly with a loud bang on the table in front of him, the 34-year-old veteran came alive and said: "and you know what Asia? We are back." Asia, let's meet soon. #WeAreBFC — Sunil Chhetri (@chetrisunil11) March 17, 2019 The conviction in his eyes and the determination in his voice was a testament to his nature of hungry for being great at what he does. Dare we say, the same fire can be seen in the eyes of someone we all know for doing spectacular things on a daily basis; Cristiano Ronaldo. Not afraid of calling out the rest of the continent which includes some of the better teams of international football, Chhetri ranks this victory as 'top two'.
  5. When it comes to cricket, India and Pakistan have this ongoing rivalry that every loves to watch unfold on the ground. It's all in good fun though, and there are usually no hard feelings at the end of the match. After all, cricket is a gentleman's game. As we all saw, India beat Pakistan in all the Asia Cup matches this year, and some Pakistani fans even went as far as to troll their own cricket team because of their performance. I mean, if you can laugh at yourself, you have basically won at life. But, instead of turning to memes, one particular fan from Pakistan decided to cheer hard for India instead. The famous superfan – Mohammad Bashir, fondly known as 'Bashir Chacha', attended the Asia Cup 2018 final between India and Bangladesh, wearing an Indian jersey. pic.twitter.com/qqxarDjsiI — Kabali of Cricket (@KabaliOf) September 28, 2018 Everyone loved the video of him, but the real winner was a picture of him that was shared by a lot of people on Twitter.

  6. India won, yay! The entire Asia Cup series was just a brilliant display of the Indian cricket team bringing it and winning, and it was just great to see our Men in Blue in such killer form. I mean, who doesn't get excited watching their country playing so spectacularly on foreign soil and making everyone proud? But, the best moment came yesterday– India won the freaking series, and in a such a thrilling manner! There was not much trolling or anything – unlike all the previous matches – and there were just celebrations all around and it's the best thing to see. So much excitement, so much pride. So near yet so far from Bangladesh. Congratulations to Team India on winning the #AsiaCup2018 . Hats off to Bangladesh for such a spirited fight despite missing key players. India have a lot of areas to work upon despite winning this & I am hopeful, they will get better. #IndvBan — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) September 28, 2018 Nail-biting, indeed.

  7. The world of cricket is well versed with the fiery rivalry shared between India and Pakistan. It entices fans, makes up for an exciting contest on the field and attracts limelight like no other. Thus, when the two teams locked horns in the 2018 Asia Cup recently, tempers were once again expected to soar. However, contrary to popular perception, their group game failed to live up to the expectations of fans, as Pakistan suffered a heavy eight-wicket loss at the hands of Rohit Sharma & co in the tournament. Bowled out for a mere 162 runs, Pakistan failed miserably to defend their total as India avenged their 2017 Champions Trophy final loss in style. © BCCL Sarfraz Ahmed and his boys were so poor, that it beggared belief. Irked by Pakistan's dismal show, their fans took pot-shots at the team and slammed them for their shambolic defeat at the hands of arch-rivals India. If the mood amongst the fans was damp, the state of mind of former Pakistani cricketers who witnessed their team's debacle, was even worse. Ahead of their Super Four clash, an Indian journalist tried to get an emotional response from Shoaib Akhtar by asking him if Pakistan was once again ready to get hammered by the 'Men in Blue'. Infuriated by the anchor's choice of words, the former Pakistani speedster minced no words in shutting her down. He asked the anchor to ask questions related solely to cricket before claiming that he isn't a state-level cricketer. He further asked her to maintain a sense of dignity and rethink who's sitting in front of her. Akhtar's comments came during a pre-match chat show that also included Gautam Gambhir and Sandeep Patil. While Akhtar eventually managed to shut the Indian anchor, he just couldn't save Pakistan from another hammering at the hands of India in the Super Four clash later in the day. Defending a mediocre total of 237 runs, Pakistan failed miserably against the marauding opening pair of Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan whose hundreds powered their side to an emphatic nine-wicket win. It was India's second successive win over Pakistan in the ongoing tournament.
  8. Arguably one of the most popular cricketers and one of the successful Indian captains, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his ever-growing stature needs no introduction to cricket. While his leadership skills allowed the Indian cricket team to scale new heights, his batting prowess saw him being hailed as one of the best finishers of the game. He might have renounced his captaincy to pave way for Virat Kohli, but there is little doubt over his popularity amongst cricket fans. For a man who has aided Indian cricket for a really long time now, Dhoni often attracts criticism which is generally focussed on his batting slump and age. His inconsistency with the willow has given the critics enough arsenal to fire verbal volleys at him. The most recent being his low strike-rate during the second ODI against England where India failed to chase down the target of 323 runs. Coming in to bat at a time when India had lost skipper Kohli and the asking rate consistently rising, Dhoni could only manage to score 59-ball 37 which included just two boundaries. He was eventually dismissed in the 47th over by Liam Plunkett as India succumbed to a 86-run defeat. © Reuters The third ODI, eventually a series decider, once again saw Dhoni failing to hit the ground running with the willow. The Jharkhand cricketer scored 42 runs off 66 deliveries as India could only amass 256 runs in 50 overs. In reply, England chased down the target with eight wickets and 33 deliveries to spare, eventually clinching the series 2-1. Dhoni's mediocre performance attracted heavy criticism from fans and pundits alike. Many even went on to speculate that Dhoni's illustrious career was probably coming to an end. For someone who has been closely watched throughout his career, criticism was nothing new for Dhoni but his batting slump in England was probably not his doing. Before going to England, Dhoni had enjoyed a good run in the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) where he led the returning Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to their third title triumph. He scored 455 runs in 18 matches at an average of 40.16 and a strike-rate of over 130. There was no shortage of big hits either as Dhoni smashed 24 fours and 30 sixes in the tournament. So what really went wrong for the CSK captain in England, you'd ask? Well, it's his batting position. © Reuters Playing for CSK in IPL 2018, Dhoni ripped the opposition bowlers apart and got his team over the line consistently by batting at the No. 4 position. It allowed him the time to settle in and build the innings before going hammer and tongs at the opposition bowlers in the death overs. But, during the limited-overs series against England, the hard-hitting Dhoni we all saw in the iconic yellow CSK jersey was nowhere to be found. With the Indian middle-order packed with specialist batsmen carrying out their respective roles, Dhoni came to bat down the order and had comparatively lesser balls to face. He might have enthralled us all by going big right from the word go in the past, but if we're being practical, Dhoni is neither the same finisher, nor he is young. From being an aggressor, Dhoni has transformed into an accumulator for Team India. And, that's exactly why the 2018 Asia Cup is a perfect opportunity for this old warhorse to win over the fans and critics. Ahead of this year's Asia Cup, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had decided to rest skipper Kohli for the tournament. While Kohli's absence didn't really go down well with host broadcaster Star, it seems to be a blessing in disguise for Dhoni. With Kohli unavailable for the No. 3 slot, Dhoni now has a chance to come up the order - probably at No. 4 - to anchor the innings for his side before accelerating in the final overs. © Reuters A vital cog in Team India's batting line-up, Dhoni will be crucial for keeping the middle-order intact at the Asia Cup. With India's most consistent batsman Kohli missing out, India's opponents will fancy their chances and could potentially target the team's shaky middle-order in a bid to produce an upset. And, this is where Dhoni's experience will come in handy for Rohit Sharma-led India. Going into the tournament, Dhoni has another confidence booster in the form of his Bradman-esque average in Asia Cup. The right-hander has been unbeaten in his last 7 innings in the tournament, scoring 113 runs at a strike-rate of 213.21. Among the batsmen who have scored more than 500 runs in the competition, Dhoni has the highest average of 95.16 in the history of Asia Cup. Apart from silencing his critics, the Asia Cup can also prove to be a platform for Dhoni to cement his position in the side for the coveted 2019 ICC World Cup in England. As India gear up to defend their Asia Cup title this year, Dhoni will be eager to make the opportunity count on the back of a prolific showing with the willow.
  9. The world of cricket is not new to superstars. The sport, in its rich legacy, has seen a lot of cricketers ruling the gentleman's game across different eras. The legend of Sir Donald Bradman still sounds afresh every time someone mentions his name. The great Sachin Tendulkar, despite his retirement, continues to rule the hearts of cricket fans across the globe. Similarly, in the modern-era of the game, no other cricketer has managed to capture our imagination the way Virat Kohli has with his exploits on the field. Proving to be a cut above the rest, the Indian captain continues to prove to be a nightmare for the opposition bowlers. His artistry with the willow has earned him plaudits across the globe, while his leadership skills has aided Team India in crunch situations. Kohli has garnered respect from the opposition players and is cherished by fans for his might. Such has been his popularity that he has also become a prized-possession of the broadcasters and popular brands. Thus, when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced that Kohli will be rested for the 2018 Asia Cup, the official broadcaster of the tournament - Star - was left ruing the absence of the Indian captain. MSK Prasad, the chief of selectors, had announced that Kohli had been playing continuously for quite some time and the Indian cricket board decided to hand him the period of rest. But, Star is clearly not impressed. © Reuters In an email to Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Game Development Manager Thusith Perera, host broadcaster Star expressed their displeasure, stating how Kohli's absence will impact the financial aspect of the coverage. "In our view, the announcement of the absence of one of world's best batsmen from the Asia Cup, only 15 days before the commencement of the Asia Cup, is a severe dent to us (event broadcaster) and will severely impact our ability to monetise and generate revenue for the tournament," the email stated. In response, BCCI CEO Rahul Johri claimed, "Kindly note that the team selected by BCCI selection Committee (an expert body comprising of former cricketers) to participate in the Asia Cup as announced on 1st September 2018 is the best available team." “Please also take note that selection of the best available team for participation in a tournament is the sole prerogative of the selection committee of BCCI. It is not open for Asian Cricket Council or its broadcaster to insist on the selection of any particular player and/or to question the expert opinion of the Selection Committee as to which is the best available team for a particular tournament,” Johri's mail claimed. © Reuters Now, it's needless to say that Kohli's absence at the ongoing Asia Cup will understandably have some financial impact for the host broadcasters. But, as the BCCI's response reveals, the right to select the team is solemnly reserved for the Indian board and its selectors. A broadcaster can complain and whine about it, but they cannot force a cricket board to select a team or player to their whims and fancies. “The matter was discussed with the BCCI. We have been informed by BCCI that best available team is participating in Asia Cup 2018. Therefore, we would like to reiterate that ACC is fully compliant with its MRLA obligations,” the ACC game development manager wrote in a letter to Star. More importantly, Kohli has been a workhorse for his side, playing continuously series after series, tours after tours. He was part of India's rigorous tour of England that included three ODIs and T20Is alongside five Tests. Being the most important and crucial batsman for his side, Kohli's workload needs to be handled properly by the BCCI which probably explains their decision to hand him some much-needed rest for the Asia Cup. © Reuters The Indian team cannot afford Kohli to exhaust his energy and vigour in a tournament like Asia Cup where Pakistan seems to be the only competition for them. In the bigger scheme of things, the Indian board would want the skipper to be ready and fresh for the much-anticipated tour of Australia that poses a bigger challenge Down Under. Slated to begin from 21st November, India's tour of Australia will be comprised of three ODIs, four Tests and three T20Is - spanning over two months. Following their exploits in Australia, the Indian team will then travel to New Zealand for five ODIs and three T20Is beginning from 23rd January, 2019. Once that comes to an end, the sub-continent giants will host the Australian side for five ODIs and two T20Is in a two-month long tour which is scheduled from 24th February till 13th March. The months of March and April next year will then see the likes of Kohli and his teammates plying their trade in the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). And, once that comes to an end, the world of cricket will brace for the coveted 2019 ICC World Cup slated from 30th May till 14th July. Given the tournaments and tours scheduled for Men in Blue, the BCCI's decision to rest Kohli might not have fared well for the broadcasters, but it undeniably an important and well-thought call for Team India which heavily relies on its skipper to get past their opponents across the three formats in cricket.
  10. Brace yourself guys! We've seen Sri Lankan cricketer Lasith Malinga sport his trademark coloured curls and grunge beard since the last 10 years. And now, after a long decade, he is throwing in some major changes to his look. To be honest, we've been secretly rooting for him to join the stylish beard bandwagon that the men in blue have often sported. But we never thought that this day would come when the great Malinga would finally #BreakTheBeard. Taking a cue from his cricketer pal Hardik Pandya, Malinga decided to flaunt who is the true slinga of style. Watch him go from a grunge look to a tamed and groomed mane in this video he posted on social media. We aren't kidding! Here's a photo of him browsing through the other #BreakTheBeard videos before zeroing on his all new classy and groomed goatee beard. Shyam We love his new look and think he made the right move to hop right in for a beard makeover before the Asia Cup 2018. He is looking sharp and full of stylish swag. The fans are definitely going to love Malinga's style on and off-the-field. We sure do! What's even more interesting is that Malinga has actually inspired his team captain Angelo Mathews too to revamp his beard style before the big game tomorrow. Look at him go from subtle to clean shaven! #BreakTheBeard is sure breaking boundaries! We wonder which international cricketer is next in queue! Till then, here's wishing Malinga and the Sri Lankan Team Captain Cool Angelo Mathews the very best for the Asia Cup 2018.

  12. After Isha and Akash Ambani's extravagant pre-engagement and engagement parties, the world thought that the celebrations might have come to a halt for some time and will now resume in December, when the two are said to get married to their respective partners. Reuters But, today the Ambanis gifted themselves another reason to celebrate and hold parties. Why? Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Industries Ltd, today added another title in front of his name and that is - 'Asia's richest person'. Reuters Reportedly, Ambani has toppled Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma to become Asia's richest person as he places Reliance Industries Ltd. to disrupt the e-commerce space in India. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Ambani's net worth was estimated to be $44.3 billion and Jack Ma's wealth was at $44 billion. Reuters While Jack Ma reportedly lost $1.4 billion this year, Ambani has, on the other hand, added $4 billion to his fortune as Reliance “doubled its petrochemicals capacity and investors cheered the success of his disruptive telecom upstart Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd.” Does that mean all the Jio users can pat their backs and take credit for Mukesh Ambani becoming Asia's richest person? Well keeping the jokes aside, we guess both the Ambanis and Bollywood found another reason to party like there's no tomorrow, at Antilia. Source: The Times Of India
